Tsunami: Images of Resilience: Honoring the Tenth Anniversary of the Indian Ocean Tsunami

Availability: Ready to download

A profoundly moving look into the unseen moments of survival, strength, and resilience among the survivors of the massive 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, this collection of rare photojournalistic images stands as testament to the extraordinary human capacity to survive the most devastating of natural disasters. The stories we remember most, the stories that have passed down thro A profoundly moving look into the unseen moments of survival, strength, and resilience among the survivors of the massive 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, this collection of rare photojournalistic images stands as testament to the extraordinary human capacity to survive the most devastating of natural disasters. The stories we remember most, the stories that have passed down through generations of telling and retelling, are the ones that pit humans against seemingly insurmountable odds and obstacles, whether caused by nature or man. We may seek peace and stability in our lives, yet are most moved, and inspired to action, by conflict and challenge. The Indian Ocean tsunami of December 26, 2004, which devastated the shores of 11 countries and took the lives of over a quarter of a million people, burned through the world’s consciousness for months afterwards. Just as the wave shattered everything in its path, so the stories of those who encountered it forever changed, torn apart and unraveled. The sea forced them not only to rebuild their lives, but to rewrite their stories. And so they did. They rebuilt and they rewrote. Photographer Dan Root, whose client roster includes Nike, adidas, Manchester United and the Oregon Food Bank, was on the ground in India and Thailand three months after the tsunami, capturing the stories of survival and resilience taking place all around him. What impressed him most, he will tell you, was neither the scale of the destruction nor the colossal amounts of aid pouring in, but the indomitable spirit of the people in these regions. Conceived by author and entrepreneur Birgitte Rasine and sponsored by international non profit ICLEI, the original “Tsunami: stories of resilience” documentary project has now turned into a gorgeous hardcover photography book of images. Stories told in images, because no words in any language can fully express the power and drama of the hundreds of thousands of lives so profoundly changed by the very ocean that once gave us all life. (Proceeds from sales of this book fund workshops and seminars on inner strength and resilience.)
